Pian dei Grassi

A brief intermission from the rain so I took off toward Vittorio Veneto.  Just after you turn onto the road to Valdobbiadene you pass a little town called Longhere.  Turn at the sign for Fais and head steeply upward.  This continues high above Vittorio Veneto to a junction at 1219 meters.  If you're in shape you can continue to Monte Cor at 1300 meters or to the end of pavement toward Col Visentin at 1400 meters ( or on the gravel road to 1700 meters, preferably on a MTB).  I was exhausted so headed back down.         

Ride home was tough, no energy. I don't think I've been eating enough lately. But I made it home just as the rain started in Giais.  Only got damp, it wasn't too heavy.  Great climb!


End of the road for me today

The climb continues to Col Visentin if you can
